Description

The Candlestick Wall is the wildly featured red wall on the far left side of the THAIWAND. During high season, these routes are in the shade all day after 10:00am. Usually very secluded from the crowds and a nice breeze to keep you cool and dry. In 1999, I borrowed a rack of gear, and climbed all the way to the top of the THAIWAND without a drill or a single bolt. Many threads and great cam placements allowed Jay Foley and I to establish "The Candlestick"(2 long pitches-5.10+). 3 more routes were added over the next few years... the rock quality is spectacular and the position is crazy! You can see Phra Nang Beach(from the tops of the routes), East and West Railey, and Ton Sai in the distance...
Routes from left to right:
(1)Red Line-5.11b
(2)Crystal Flame>Glowing Tunnel-5.10c
(3)The Candlestick-5.10d
(4)Thai Stick-5.10d
Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. Details

Getting There

From the base of "Primal Scream"(far left side of the THAIWAND) hike further up through the jungle to the left. A faint trail heads up towards a steep tree filled gully of solid, sharp limestone. Usually there is a fixed rope to lead the way. Solo or rope up to climb the 120' exposed approach pitch to the base of the quality red wall above. Use extreme caution getting up and down this approach...
